SIKORA presents PLANOWAVE 6000 M for measuring values

15 April 2019

SIKORA is a manufacturer and global supplier of advanced measuring technology for the metals, hose and tube, wire and cable, optical fiber and plastics industries

With the RADAR SCAN 6000, SIKORA presents a system for non-contact inline measurement of the diameter and ovality of metal tubes and rods. The system is based on progressive, high-resolution radar technology and records measuring values over 360° of the circumference of the product to micron accuracy. The measurement is carried out by radar transceivers simultaneously from several directions and is insensitive to heat, dust and steam. Typical measuring ranges of 300 to 2,500 mm are covered.

The PLANOWAVE 6000 M, a non-contact measuring system that is used for non-destructive thickness measurement of slabs, strips and plates. The system offers a precise thickness measurement independent of material, temperature and surface of the product. An external calibration on the material is not needed. The measurement of the product is also based on radar technology. Transceivers above and below the material continuously send and receive frequency modulated millimeter waves. The thickness – typically centerline thickness – of the product is precisely determined from the runtime difference. By using a traversing set of transceivers, the cross-section profile of the product can be optionally determined. The PLANOWAVE M is designed for a typical measuring range of up to 500 mm.
